'''''The Legend of Dick and Dom''''' is a [[TheBBC BBC]] children's fantasy sitcom, three seasons broadcast 2008-11. Stars DickAndDom as bumbling royal brothers who must collect ingredients for a magic potion to cure a plague that has struck their homeland, [[MagicalLand Fyredor]], aided by IneptMage Mannitol and thieving servant [[IncrediblyLamePun Lutin]].

The group wander all over the FantasyWorldMap of Bottom World -- sometimes literally, as the LemonyNarrator, [[Creator/MontyPython Terry Jones]], explains that they couldn't afford to film the incredibly exciting action that's going on, so they show a dotted line on a map dashing away from pictures of [[HereThereBeDragons dragons]] instead. Each episode they have to defeat a MonsterOfTheWeek, or meet some wacky countryfolk who hinder them in finding the next revolting or impossible ingredient. In the third season, the plot switches to their attempts to get home before the newly revealed BigBad can stop them.

This was DickAndDom's first major CBBC project after ''Series/DickAndDomInDaBungalow'', and there are plenty of {{Shout Out}}s to Bungalow games and jokes -- DI Harry Batt turns up as a Sheriff, for example.

Fairly {{Troperiffic}} -- see long list below -- although many of the tropes are applicable to antagonists or settings from individual episodes (and are therefore slight spoilers).
----
!!''The Legend of Dick and Dom'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: Large enough to escape through in [[spoiler: "Escape"]].
* ActorAllusion: Quite a few. Dave Chapman's Beastmaster character looks an awful lot like his Death from ''Series/DickAndDomInDaBungalow'', for example.
* TheAllegedCar: Jalopies that run on jam and have candelabras for headlamps, in [[WackyRacing "The Cabbage Ball Run"]] episode.
* AllJustADream: They come home in triumph to cheering crowds in "Home". And then wake up.
* AmusingInjuries
* BackToSchool: Back to WizardingSchool... in an episode called [[CaptainObvious "Back to School".]]
* BandageMummy: In "Cabbage Ball Secrets", Dom ends up bandaged head to toe.
* TheBeastmaster (type 2)

* EasyAmnesia: Caused by breathing in a gas, in "Forget Me Nuts".
* {{Elseworld}}: In "Mists of Time", the group are transported to a terrifying and mysterious place [[spoiler:very much like modern-day England, except that this seems to be an alternate dimension where they pronouce Slough to rhyme with cuff rather than cow]].
* {{Enthralling Siren}}s: Literal sirens who lure men in with their song and then devour them, in "Sirens". [[spoiler:The song doesn't work on women, though]].
* {{Evil Twin}}s: [[ThePsychoRangers All of them]], complete with [[BeardOfEvil goatees]], even Lutin's; go round causing trouble that the real ones are blamed for in the episode "Dick's Brain".

* FantasyWorldMap: The gang's travels are shown as animations on it.
* FictionalHoliday: "Garlic Tuesday"

* GottaCatchEmAll (type B): A magic scroll reveals what ingredient is needed next for the potion.

* LemonyNarrator: [[Creator/MontyPython Terry Jones]]; prone to complaining about being shut up in a small booth and not paid enough.

* MySkullRunnethOver: [[spoiler:The Bighead Tribe again.]]
* MysticalPlague: The plot driver.
* NeverMessWithGranny: Mannitol's Gran is a lot more [[NotUsingTheZWord formidable]] at her speciality of apple crumble than she seems at first...
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: Pretty much all the officials they meet, from traffic wardens to anthropomorphic personifications inside [[spoiler:TheBeastmaster]]'s mind.
* PaperThinDisguise: Averted; Lutin has a simple false moustache that competely fools everyone -- we eventually discover (in passing) that it is magic, when a total stranger takes off his moustache and turns into Lutin.
* PeoplePuppets: A warlock does this in "Beastly".
* PlotCoupons: The potion ingredients.
* PottyEmergency: In "Cabbage Ball Secrets". It's not helped when they go drive over a bumpy road, and then go into a shop where the shopkeeper is slowly trickling a yellow liquid from one bottle to another.

** [[Series/DickAndDomInDaBungalow The Prize Idiot]] cropping up as part of "The Loony Tribe"?
** There's also the odd one to other fantasy series, like a [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Constable Carrot]] turning up.
* SpellBook
* TakenForGranite: [[spoiler: Dick and Dom]] in "Rock Hard".

* [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse What Happened to the Frog]]: After [[spoiler:Prince Dom's love interest]] turns into a frog, she is put into Dom's belt pouch to keep safe, and [[PutOnABus never spoken of again]]. [[SarcasmMode Why, it's almost as if]] the writers forgot all about her.
* WickedWitch: A whole tribe of them -- Spanish, for some reason -- in "Hag Puss".
* WizardingSchool: Hogwarts AffectionateParody in "Back to School".
* WhoEvenNeedsABrain: The potion calls for the brain of [[spoiler:a prince called Dick]]. They manage to get hold of one [[spoiler:and the prince is not inconvenienced]].
